Thunder clinch first playoff berth with win at Dallas


By Mike Fisher, for NBA.com

DALLAS (NBA.com exclusive) -- There was a time, Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks jokes, when not even his own mother fully supported her son's team. So you can forgive the likes of Dirk Nowitzki for habitually referring to the members of the Thunder as "the kids'' and "those young boys.'' He's never meant disrespect; Nowitzki and his Dallas Mavericks are well-aware of the Thunder's impressive climb to contention and of how Oklahoma City is suddenly almost as capable of winning huge games as Dallas is.

Or maybe "almost'' no longer applies.

"We've made the playoffs, and that was our goal like the other 29 teams in the league going into the year,'' said Brooks after the Thunder's 121-116 win on Saturday at American Airlines Center, which secured their first-ever playoff berth as an Oklahoma City-based franchise. "Everybody puts so much work into our team. I'm proud of our fans ... they supported us when we were 3-29 (to start last season) and that's not easy to do. You know, my mom struggled supporting us at that time.''

Surely Mom is on coach Brooks' bandwagon now. The Thunder (47-28) entered the night in sixth place but feels it is legitimately in the mix for a top-tier seed in the West. Still, for the moment, the Thunder can simply celebrate this accomplishment. Oklahoma City now has twice as many wins this season as it had in 2008-09 and is the NBA's most improved team. This success allows the Thunder to end a nine-game losing streak at Dallas and to split the season series 2-2 with the perennially contending Mavs, who drop to 50-27 with a second straight loss.

This year's edition of the Thunder is actually one of the top road teams in the West. Oklahoma City's third consecutive road win gives it 22 for the year -- that after having won just eight road contests all of last season.

The Oklahoma City team made up of "the kids'' and "those young buys'' is led by Kevin Durant, who experienced a relative bust-out performance here, given what is essentially a career-long slump against Dallas. Durant, who played at the University of Texas, came in averaging just 16.0 points in five career games in Dallas. Durant came in averaging 29.9 points per game so his bid for the NBA scoring title wasn't aided here. But he totaled 23 points on 7-of-18 shooting and also contributed five rebounds, five assists and a career-best five steals.

Oklahoma City also benefited from the work of Jeff Green (9-of-15 for 22 points) and Russell Westbrook (17 points). The Thunder was also able to counter Dallas' touted bench with 32 total points from subs James Harden (11), Eric Maynor (14) and surprisingly productive backup center Nick Collison, who troubled the Mavs inside by making six of his seven shots for 17 points.

Dallas scored 37 points in the first quarter while shooting 75 percent. But in the initial 6:29 of the second period, the Mavs only managed to score seven points and went to the half trailing 67-59.

The Mavs tried to mount a third-quarter comeback fueled by Jason Kidd, who scored 13 in the period and for the game totaled 24 points. But Oklahoma City actually increased its eight-point halftime lead to 13 in the third period to go up 94-85 entering the fourth.

Dallas pushed for another comeback in the fourth, when after trailing by as much as 19, a succession of bursts led by Nowitzki and a defensive full-court press meant a 17-2 Dallas run and brought the home team to within 110-106 with 2:40 remaining.

However, with 52.7 seconds remaining J.J. Barea missed a free throw that would've cut the deficit to three, and then Eric Maynor responded at 28.7 with a 3-pointer to give the Thunder a 116-109 advantage. Durant missed a pair of free throws, but not even five-points-worth of frantic bombs by Jason Kidd and Eduardo Najera in the final 12 seconds were enough to close the gap.

Wasted was another stellar effort by Nowitzki, who had 13 rebounds, three assists and made 10-of-19 shots for 30 points -- his 18th 30-point performance of the season.

The loss continues a pattern of erratic play from Dallas. The Mavs are 5-6 in their last 11 games while they too try to cling to a top-tier seed. Included in that streak are four home losses that have come by an average of 14.6 points. More bad news for the Mavs came in the form of a left oblique muscle-strain injury sustained by Dallas' Shawn Marion, who exited just before halftime.

Dallas now has 13 home losses. ... including this outcome, notable in part because the Thunder last won in Dallas on Dec. 9, 2004.

But for the Oklahoma City Thunder, that's now ancient history -- as "the kids'' and "those young boys'' continue to create a new history.

And now, even Scott Brooks' mom wants to be a part of it.
